Sincona sale 4, lot 5225
This specimen was lot 5225 in Sincona sale 4 (Zurich, October 2011), where it sold for 255 CHF (about US$339 including buyer's fees). The catalog description[1] noted,
"NIEDERLANDE Batavische Republik Dukat 1800, Utrecht. Gutes sehr schön. (Netherlands, Batavian republic, ducat of 1800, Utrecht mint. Good very fine.)"
In 1795 the revolutionary armies of France invaded and occupied the United Provinces and reorganized it into the puppet Batavian Republic, which survived until 1806, when Napoleon installed his brother Louis on the newly created throne of the Kingdom of Holland, which lasted only until 1810. After Napoleon's fall in 1814, William I, of the old house of Orange, was made king. This type is recorded for 1795-1808 from Gelderland ("GEL"), Utrecht ("TRA") and Holland ("HOL"). To complicate matters, restrikes are known from the Stuttgart mint.

Recorded mintage: est. 1,400,000.
